Voicemail from the Grave

darkness around and wet ground
seems that I'll never be found
no one remembers my face or my name
I have no wish, no thoughts and no aim
only cold blood there is in my veins
my heart isn't broken and it isn't in chains
I'm free to start my own life again
I think this will be an interesting game
new chances, new paths, new roads ahead
I am real for the future, for the past l'm dead
I feel the power of night and the power of moon
but unluckily the sunrise is coming to soon

of course, I've always liked the macabre. I see where Mark gets a bit confused, but I understand where you are going with this. I'm thinking that you are saying that your new [life] is a new game, full of different direction than a mortal life. There are some restrictions of course, and one of them being that you must be safe from the daylight. Here's what I would say about a couple of lines.

I am [now] for the future, for the past I am dead.
I feel the power of night and of the moon.
It's unfortunate that sunrise comes way too soon.
Capitalize all your I not just some of them.

Other than that, I think it's a good job. ~ Geezer.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

Thank you Geezer!
I tried some of your ideas.
And thank you for your thoughts and words.

I feel the mood of this piece!

The last line: "but unluckily the sunrise is coming to soon"
This line envision the total awakening of the dead when rapture shall take place. I just pictured the imagery in this line. Sunrise is a new dawn for the coming of the Lord Jesus to bring out those who was dead many years ago.
